Teaming with Microbes: The Organic Gardener’s Guide to the Soil Food Web

Teaming with Microbes: The Organic Gardener’s Guide to the Soil Food Web

by Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis, 220 pages, 6¼x8¼, hardcover. Part the dusty veil of classic soil chemistry. Move beyond the soil test and mind your microbes! Most gardeners don’t realize that soil is created largely by living organisms. This extraordinary overview of the soil food web, focusing mostly on the microbial level, explains how bacteria and fungi cycle the major elements necessary to support all plant life, and form complex relationships with other organisms to enrich the soil and maintain its structure. The authors complete this fascinating overview by showing how to foster rich, productive microbial life in your own garden using compost, mulches and actively aerated compost tea. A must-read for everyone curious about the marvel of soil life. -Aktan Askin
